The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | President Obama ordered three thousand U.S. troops to West Africa Tuesday to halt Ebola before this virus becomes deadlier by mutating. That's when things get scary. We all saw what happens when NFL players developed an immunity to the calming effect of elevator music.

Hurricane Odile slammed into Baja California with Category Three winds of one hundred and twenty-five miles an hourTuesday. The storm pushed high humidity into a Los Angeles already sweltering under desert heat. Everybody is sweating like Roger Goodell on the The View.

Tim Tebow's role as a college football analyst was expanded Saturday after he displayed so much wit and humor and enthusiasm in his SEC football commentary. He's just patiently biding his time in the studio. Soon there will be no one left to play in the NFL except Tim Tebow.

Anheuser-Busch issued a statement Tuesday expressing their disappointment in the way the NFL is dealing with spousal abuse cases. It had to get the commissioner's attention. You know your league is in trouble when alcohol is disappointed in the way you are handling things.

The CDC hailed the president's order to send three thousand U.S. ground troops to West Africa to battle the spread of the Ebola virus. It's a dashing and dangerous mission. Dick Cheney predicted that when U.S. troops arrive in West Africa, they will be greeted as incubators.

President Obama visited a hospital in Atlanta that treats Ebola victims Tuesday. He took advantage of their top-notch burn center. Last week in his address to the country, Obama said the radical Islamists who fight for the Islamic State are not Islamic, and his pants caught on fire.

Michelle Obama lashed out at House Republicans who are trying to weaken her nutrition standards for school lunches and letting schools opt out. Kids skip out and go eat fast food. There's something morally wrong about Taco Bell because food shouldn't be cheaper than gum.

The White House said Monday it's going to bomb ISIS oil trucks on the roads of Iraq while they are en route to black market oil depots. Is it possible for the U.S. government to keep anything a secret? We are the only country that sends out a Save the Date before we invade you.

The Pentagon hinted to Congress Tuesday that U.S. ground forces might be needed in Iraq to fight ISIS. We're practically local folklore by now. There's an old Iraqi proverb that says once you see the light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably an Apache helicopter heading your way.

Forbes cited Canada's booming economy as an example of how low business taxes and low income taxes are luring U.S. industries to the Great White North. It's a bit demoralizing. The U.S.-Mexican border should be covered with literature describing how nice life is in Canada.

Joe Biden flew to Des Moines on Wednesday to speak at the kickoff of the Nuns on the Bus national tour. He steals every show he's on. Last spring when the U.S. traded five Taliban prisoners for one American, the deal originally included Joe Biden, but the Taliban said no way.

Congress is trying to agree on a stop-gap supplemental budget before the fall recess. No one wants another shutdown. Roads won't be repaired, home loans won't be approved and officials won't be reachable by phone, and that's if we can keep the government up and running.

South Carolina U.S. Congressman Mark Sanford called off his engagement to the Brazilian lady for whom he left his wife when he was governor. His ex-wife says he was on prescription drugs and alcohol when he cheated. The voters heard enough and sent him straight to Congress.
